[412] commissioner, sent me that day from Florida this dispatch: “The Stanton Normal Institute is being dedicated. Thousands assembled send their greeting to you as their truest advocate.” That year this Normal had 348 pupils and 6 instructors.

Tupper (who was an enlisted Christian soldier during the last three years of the Civil War). He was the first President. It is a large thriving university. In 1869 it had 70 students and four teachers. In 1904 the governmentt (Department of Education) recorded 499 students and 35 instructors. Its departments of medicine and pharmacy place its medical work abreast of Howard University.

The university has many departments and maintains for its graduates a high standard of conduct and scholarship. The boarding pupils number over 200. The total enrollment for 1903 is 502. Much stress is laid upon the “industrial work,” including farm and garden work. The industrial features on a smaller scale are like those of Hampton.
